“Try it you may like it”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Whilst going nude is perhaps not everyone's cup of tea,you should visit this beach and try taking your clothes off.No one is bothered if you are young or old,fat or thin,the people who go regularly to Little Banana share a common thread in that they are comfortable without clothing.Once you have swum there without clothes there will be no going back.The beach is well signposted but is a bit of a hike to get to.Once there you are greeted by rows of neatly kept sun beds and parasols,a brilliant Taverna with its host Nico with his wife,daughter and cousin.They serve cool beer and wine and the most delicious chips!The prices are very reasonable,sun beds are the obligatory 8Euros for two per day.

“What a shame”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Been going to this beach for many years, went back June this year 2013 only to find that Yanni who had previously run this beach had now retired, I was told that it was now run by a family member.
This year a whole row of sunbeds and gone and the beach was now very dirty and in other years there were two rubbish bins one for plastic one for general rubbish all that was left was one very broken bin with rubbish strewn all over the place, we found broken bottles on the beach.
The paradise that had been this beach had gone what a shame.

“Worth the hillclimb”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Follow the cheeky signs to this secluded beach. Accessible even with a small 2WD car, if you give it plenty of gas in 1st gear, this beach is now one of the few naturist beaches on the island. Served by a small taverna with a simple selection of food and drink, the beach has a friendly crowd and in early July was never overcrowded. It was always busy and arrival before 11am is recommended if you want an umbrella and loungers.

“Peaceful beach”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Despite being the closest clothing optional beach left close to Koukounaries, Little Banana still retains it's peace and tranquillity and didn't get too busy during our visit. Excellent Taverna with Greek Salad at €6, lovely home made chips €4 and wine from €3. Sunbeds were the Skiathos standard €8 per day

“Nudist Beach away from the croud”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you fit yourself for the sport of sunbathing nude, Mikrh (Small) Bannana is the place. It is as small as it is its name, quiet, crystal clear waters (like most of skiathos beaches) a kiosk to get refreshments, and a bit of walk through a clear path through the woods from Bannana.
